Winemaker Notes

The near-vertical slope of the Monts Damnés produces wines that have delicate tropical fruit (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and vibrant citrus aromas. The palate confirms this fruitiness and brings a nice and clean mineral note. This very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity.

This wine can be enjoys with a great variety of dishes : Asian recipes, whitemeats like veal escalope stuffed with prawns and marjoram. As for cheese, aMunster would do a great match.


93 Points Wine Enthusiast

The precipitous slope of the Monts Damnés vineyard is beautifully positioned to produce great wine. With its balance between rich intensity and crisp acidity, this citrus-avored, mineral-textured wine is just approaching drinkability. To bring out all its character, wait until 2021.

91 Points Wine Spectator

On the slightly richer side, this offers melon, lemon curd and gooseberry gelée notes lined with sea salt accents and hints of toast. This gets grippy midpalate, but the acidity cuts through, bringing out freshness through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2028.
